Girls Waterford Development matches Sunday

Sunday was Gaynor Cup day for our girls and we had a big involvement across the 3 squads.

U12 saw Hannah Dobbyn involved, U14 saw Áine Connery, Molly Murphy and Stephanie Phelan with coaches Dee Travers and Richard Long and at U16 Emily Blackmore, Aoibhe Rees and Ella Brennan flew the flag.

Mixed bag of results but plenty experience gained by all 7 players and our coaching duo.

Big well done to all 7 of our girls involved with Waterford Schoolgirls over the weekend in Gaynor Cup fixtures.

The U16s with our own Emily Blackmore, Aoibhe Rees and Ella Brennan involved unfortunately were beaten 2 nil.

Molly Murphy, Stephanie Phelan, and Áine Connery were part of the U14 squad who won 1 nil, also involved with this group are coaches Richard Long and Dee Travers.

Tomorrow sees Hannah Dobbyn heading to Cork with the U12 development squad for their first outing. Well done to all involved.

Schoolboy Player to play with Waterford FC

The new Schoolboys season is about to start and we already have a bit of good news we would like to share with all members and supporters which occurred recently.

One of our own schoolboy players has recently requested to sign for Waterford FC and last Sunday, Daniel Ponce de Leon starred in a mini tournament for them against Rangers of Northern Ireland, Bohemians Fc and Klub Kildare, delivering excellent performances.

All in Mooncoin Celtic are absolutely delighted for Daniel on making the step up to the higher level of underage football at League of Ireland level. His attitude, hard work and superb application to everything he does on and off the pitch has paid off and Daniel has a very very bright future ahead of him in the game.

Well done to all within the club who have helped Daniel along the way from academy level right up to his recent opportunity with Waterford FC.

We will be following Daniel very closely with Waterford Fc in the U14 season of 2023. Congratulations Daniel and the very best of luck young man.
